I'm a little baffled by people complaining that the menu is boring or uninteresting. Seems like it's a really interesting menu with a very wide range of flavors and tastes from all over the world; were people hoping for burgers?
So...I didn't want to seem like a weirdo if I got caught photographing the loo, so I took a picture of the detail in the sink.

The bathroom is not plain. This design aspect is present throughout. I can't believe I am discussing bathroom theming. I have officially reached the depths of Disney fanboyism. LOL!
I will be honest and say I am a bit surprised at some of the responses but that is ok. As I always say, everyone has their own opinion. What I was hoping for were suggestions from the people that find the theming lacking. When it comes to food, you either like it or you don't. Theming is where there is room for debate. For me, I thought it was great.
So which room did you end up eating in? (Sorry if I missed it)
I think if I were put in the main dining hall, my server would have to be at the tip top of her game to make up for not being placed in one of the other two heavily themed rooms. I feel bad for the servers as although I wouldn't cut her tip or kick up a fuss, I know I'm not alone and some folk would take it out on her.
Yes exactly ^ It seems they just bought a bunch of jungle looking items at a Hobby lobby or garden home and then went to town.Yeah. The SEA room is nice, but the main dining room is definitely a bit lacking. It's actually fairly similar to how I remember it prior, just a lot more props hung around the room and a new paint job.
I agree when I saw what this place looked like I was disappointed I had high expectations for thisI think I really expected it to feel more like the Adventurers Club. I didn't have really high expectations so I wasn't expecting much, but I was expecting more than this based on the way Disney had hyped it up. It seems to be a decent restaurant but it doesn't appear to be on the same level as other recent Disney dining projects like Trader Sam's, BOG or Jock Lindsey.
I think a lot of the people who are dissapointed (myself included) don't have an issue with the direction they chose to go, just that they didn't go far enough. I think the place could have used double, if not triple the amount of antiques/chachkies/collectibles/wall art etc. It just looks very bare and sparse. I also agree with whoever said that the lighting looks WAY too bright. These things would be easy to fix, though I doubt Disney will make any changes (except to the food).
I think you just described Trader Sam's Grog Grotto & Tiki Bar.I won't judge the restaurant's current decor having not personally been in it. However, speaking generally and personally, I hope when I do visit it, I'll discover that they've left all the "authenticity," "refinement," and "class" to Epcot and Animal Kingdom. I want Adventureland to be about outrageous, grotesque tiki-kitsch
